Yet Another Big Bug

Cricket as big as your open hand, anyone? Every time I think the insect world couldn't get any creepier, I'm proven wrong.

New Zealand = close to Australia. I think I might pee myself if one of those jumped on me in the night.

I know I would if it was one of the chicken eating tarantulas in S. America...

In my case, Ron, for the latter it would be a stroke or massive heart-attack.

I've already told E and A...if they're tired hangin' out with me...the quickest way for me to "get the message" is to buy a tarantula--the bird-eating variety especially--and keep it in the house.

A sure guarantee I'll never set foot inside! :-D

No worries - if it was here, it'd be dead. tits up and all. From my nice new shotgun. 10 guage and loaded with all sorts of nasty large pellets.

Even pump action so I could put more than one shell at the thing, just to make sure.

10 gauge? What does it shoot, bowling balls?

Lead marbles. Probably with depleted uranium in them.

Kicks like a mule on 'roids.
